Social Service Projects
(Manava Seva
)

 

"Manava Seva is Madhava Seva"
Service to Humanity is Service to God.

"At the end of life we shall not be asked
How much pleasure we had in it, but how much service we gave to it;
Not how full it was of success, but how full it was of sacrifice;
Not how happy we were, but how helpful we were;
Not how much ambition was gratified, but how Love was served"
- An excerpt from Sri Swamiji's speeches.


In this light, Sri Swamiji makes it a part of the mission of the Avadhoota Datta Peetham to provide service to the poor and the needy. Sri Swamiji has emphasized many times that spiritual life is not only meditation; it also includes service to those in need. This frame of mind, to work without personal gain and to surrender the fruits of one's actions to God, is called Karma Yoga. It is through the practice of Karma Yoga that the sense of "I", i.e. "I am the doer, "I am the enjoyer", "I am the sufferer" etc., is removed and is replaced by the realization that all creation, including one's self, is the manifestation of the one Supreme "I". Through the social services of the Peetham, Sri Swamiji has provided not only physical help to those in need, but also a way to uplift them spiritually.
Avadhoota Datta Peetham and its many branches under Sri Swamiji's guidance have supported numerous social projects since they were founded.

The SGS Hospital, HolisticHealthCenter located in the premises of the Peetham caters to the medical needs of the poor and needy. In addition there is also a mobile hospital, which regularly visits villages that lack medical facilities. The Medical Services available at the Hospital include Ayurvedic out patient and in patient treatment facilities (ancient Indian system of medicine), Allopathic out patient services, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Cataract Operation Programs, Diabetes Detection Programs and Clinical Laboratory Services, Regular Medical Check up camps and Free Dispensary. The Hospital also runs a Music Therapy research unit.

There is also an Ayurvedic Medicine Manufacturing Unit which is engaged in preparing medicines in a traditional way. These medicines prepared here are put to use in the Ashram dispensary.
Further, Datta Peetham has taken the service motto in the following areas

  • Ambulances to small towns for emergency medical assistance
  • Construction of toilet facilities in schools in impoverished areas
  • Assist scholars to publish their works
  • Conduct mass marriages of poor in backward areas
  • Conduct Kriya Yoga camps in prisons to improve their quality of thought
  • Grant scholarships to students and scholars
  • Assist reconstruction of dilapidated temples
  • Donate furniture to schools
  • Free medical services (free advice and medicines where available) are being given in all branches of Ashrama.
  • Ammavodi located at Hyderabad, a home for destitute aged women is a shelter to elderly women who have no one to care.
  • Gift equipment like calipers, wheel chairs to physically handicapped.
  • Gift tools such as Sewing machines etc, for self-employment of women.
